The Farm Neck Foundation is requesting submissions for 2013 grants. All Island nonprofit organizations whose goal is to improve the quality of life in the Martha’s Vineyard community are eligible. The deadline is Nov. 1. The foundation is a charitable organization created in 1989 and funded by contributions from the membership and supporters of Farm Neck Golf Club. The aim of the foundation is to provide charitable assistance to the Island community in the form of donations and grants to civic-minded organizations in need of funding. The foundation gives special consideration to innovative approaches to problems or needs that cannot get funding through traditional sources.
Island nonprofit organizations should submit a concise proposal describing the specific project, its potential benefits, budgetary requirements and grant amount requested, along with two letters of support from sources outside of the organization.
Proposals should be sent to Farm Neck Foundation, Inc. P.O. Box 1656, Oak Bluffs, MA 02557.
This article has been edited to reflect the fact that submissions are due Nov. 1, not Nov. 13 as was previously stated.
